Cable provider encourages CBC not to shut down analogue transmitters

Cable provider Eastlink is asking the CBC to reconsider their decision to shut down its analogue TV transmitters in Newfoundland and Labrador.

Eastlink is encouraging the broadcaster to keep them running as some customers may be left without CBC from July 31.

If Eastlink customers don’t have a fibre cable link, they may lose local CBC programming such as Land and Sea and Here & Now.

However, CBC says those customers will receive news and programming from CBC Nova Scotia.
